Outstanding OTR Show
Tales of the Texas Rangers is simply outstanding. It is like the best of Dragnet and Gunsmoke combined. It is the retelling of stories from the files of the Texas Rangers. The stories have the dusty feel of 30's and 40's Texas, beautifully narrated by Joel McCrea. It is certainly one of the best of the radio series I have encountered, ranking right up there with The Six Shooter, Johnny Dollar, and Frontier Gentleman. The only problem is that there were so few episodes, only about two seasons. It's really outstanding.
